    I have a few questions/ideas about WHM's security. Any answers/comments would be appreciated.

    1. How would I limit access to WHM to only one IP address or a range?

    2. Is it possible to change the username and/or password to access WHM to be different than the server's root login?

    3. Does installing a signed SSL certificate for WHM increase security (rather than using the self-signed cert)?

    Thank you for your reply.

    I am not famliar with IPtables. What would I need to edit to allow access to WHM from one IP?
